Amy Botes of Pepped Productions was delighted to join forces with NatWest once again to offer another *FREE* ‘Pitching skills’ workshop in Northampton at NatWest, The Drapery Branch, on Tuesday 6th March 2018. It was another resounding success and more events in association with NatWest are to follow!

Here is a video explaining a little more about what we covered:


This workshop has previously been a huge success and received a multitude of glowing reviews.

What was the word on the street about this workshop?

Pitching is more than throwing your ball into a park. You must play the game and have a winning attitude. We need to let the audience know who we are, what we want, what we will give them and why we are different.

Through her pitching skills workshop, Amy aims to teach you the communication skills to really power your pitch and boost your confidence. It also gives you the opportunity to network with fellow business owners.

In business, we pitch all the time; whether this is through face to face customer contact, advertisements, sales presentations, networking or even just chatting with your mate down the pub… who ends up knowing a bloke… who introduces you to your next client.

This workshop introduces you to professional acting techniques that you can use in any context to get you pitch perfect in seconds. You will come away having a better knowledge of:

  • how to use your body, mind and voice to engage your business audience and win them over.

  • how to structure a pitch.

  • how to make the most of the opportunities that are presented to us, even in the most unlikely of contexts.

Throughout the session, Amy was encouraging and friendly. Within 30-minutes I could already see a difference in the way I stood and spoke.
